The Dark Intercept is the first novel in a “riveting” (Emmy Laybourne) science fiction series for teens by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Julia Keller that challenges the voluntary surrender of liberties for the perception of safety.
When the state controls your emotions, how hard will you fight to feel free?
In a radiant world of endless summer, the Intercept keeps the peace. Violet Crowley, the sixteen-year-old daughter of New Earth’s Founding Father, has spent her life in comfort and safety. Her days are easy thanks to the Intercept, a crime-prevention device that monitors and provokes emotion. But when her long-time crush, Danny Mayhew, gets into a dangerous altercation on Old Earth, Violet launches a secret investigation to find out what he’s hiding. An investigation that will lead her to question everything she’s every known about Danny, her father, and the power of the Intercept.
Much like the device itself, The Dark Intercept might get under your skin.
- The idea of two worlds was amazing. How awesome is that? An Old Earth and a New Earth.
- The idea of Intercept was interesting. I found it so incredibly fascinating and loved learning more about it throughout the whole book.
- Violet was a great protagonist. She was incredibly smart and I loved following her around and listening to her commentary.
- The writing style was incredible. I can’t wait to read more by Keller in the future.
- I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I literally love the cover of this one. All the lightening and the city skyscape. It’s beautiful.
- I overall loved this book and I can’t wait for book two.
